AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A part of me is feeling nervous, so i ride around in the back of the bus for a while. My bare, dirty (oh so dirty) feet are pulled up onto the plastic seat. I birdwatch the late-night people. Where did you come from? Why did this story choose you? What does your 'about the author' page say? I wonder about them. (Please let them wonder about me.) There is a Miss Lonelyhearts looking out the window and mumbling to herself. There is a boy and a girl kissing up the front. they are both beautiful. I imagine myself as the girl. I squeeze my eyes shut and pinch my thigh. Wake up, you miserable freak!...' (Introduction)

    'Pickles is the name of my cat and I love her very much. Pickles has soft, white fur, dappled with orange and tortoiseshell. Pickles likes to sit where you were just sitting, or in places you were just about to sit (perhaps she thinks the chairs are being pulled out for her). Pickles’s favourite toy is my pot of Blistex Lip Conditioner SPF30.'
